Update 9 of 13

Practical Preparations for Teardown

Teardown is less than 48 hours away! We can hardly wait. Here are some logistical details to help you prepare.

Sessions Schedule

If you haven’t seen it, the full schedule has been posted, along with links to detailed descriptions for all sessions:


Registration & Tickets

If you’ve already purchased a ticket, or if you are presenting or volunteering at Teardown, then your ticket will be waiting for you at the registration desk in the main hallway of the PNCA building. If you haven’t yet purchased a ticket, you can do so at the registration desk, though there are only a few left and we expect to be at capacity.


Like last year, Teardown will be held in the main building of the Pacific Northwest College of Art (PNCA):

511 NW Broadway
Portland, OR 97209

PNCA is centrally located and easily accessible on public transit.

Puzzle Hunt

In addition to some offsite dinners hosted by Autodesk and CTRL-H, we’ll be running a puzzle hunt around town in the evenings. Part of the puzzle hunt will involve walking and taking public transit. More details to come.


This weekend’s weather forecast calls for high temperatures in the low 70s (°F), some clouds, but no rain. It will be cold enough at night that you’ll want an extra layer or two if you plan to join us as we go about town.


If you are presenting at Teardown, you should review your session title, description, location, and time on the schedule and sessions listing. If you see anything amiss, let us know as soon as possible. Teardown staff and volunteers will be on hand to help you set up your session.


Hurray! Hackster.io is proudly sponsoring Teardown. Hackster.io bravely explores every nook and cranny of the hardware world, so will have plenty to chew on at Teardown. If you see one of the Hackster.io team, shake their hand and share your project with them!

See you on Friday!
